Fallon and I had a huge closet cleanout adventure at her place this weekend, and it inspired to sort through some piles and bags of my own when I got home. Among many other things, I rediscovered this gorgeous A.P.C. shirt I bought while on vacation in New York.

I've always adored the print but wasn't sure how to style this piece. A.P.C.'s lookbooks are generally not overstyled or over-layered and many outfits are very simple in order to showcase the pieces worn. I decided to take a cue from Jean Toitou and go simple with clean, unfussy lines.

The result was super comfortable and felt effortless. I did feel a little naked, as I'm used to layering on a jacket, scarf, and random jangles when getting dressed. I think the Anthro sensibility is still working its way out of me--a one- or two-piece outfit to me feels so bare!


  1. I really like how you styled it, very simple and cute! :D
    Plus I love your bag!!
    P.S. I'm giving away a dress on my blog if you'd like to enter! ;D

  2. What a lovely shirt! The print is pretty, yes, but I think the star of the show is clearly the modest, Victorian-inspired silhouette- even the sleeves have such a pleasing shape ^^ You have so many wonderful, unique pieces in your closet.

  3. That is a pretty pattern! I think you wore the shirt right too – APC style does seem this way. And that is a fantastic bag.

  4. Haha, I feel the same way sometimes when getting dressed -- it seems like just a top and a bottom and nothing else seems so, well, boring! But with a shirt like yours, I do think you're right in thinking that less is more. The shirt has the "jangles" already included -- fun print, long sleeves, cute collar -- so there's little need to add more! I also adore your bag. I remember swooning over it when it was first released!


Bonjour y'all! Thanks for stopping by.
